"Freedom to me means the ability to think, to act without any constraint except for the law." Isaiah Tidwell discusses what freedom means to him, Abraham Lincoln's impact, and what we wants his granddaughter Parker to know about freedom and opportunity.

"Freedom is not free." What a powerful message to convey to younger generations. Love the interaction between Mr. Tidwell and Parker.

Very interesting. He said "Freedom is not free" - what a powerful statement. It was also very interesting to hear Mr. Tidwell mention the Emancipation Proclamation made by President Lincoln during the Civil War. I just watched the PBS documentary last week (again) about the Civil War - very important time in our country's history and the fight for freedom continues to this day.

Mr. Tidwell has been a fortunate man to have seen and heard the late Dr. Martin Luther King. One positive experience can influence a nation. Thus I am left to think about what legacy I will leave.

It was very inspiring to hear Mr. Tidwell recount his experiences as well as his definition of what freedom means to him. His grand-daughter, Parker had great questions is lucky to have him as her grandfather!
